Money Moral Dilemma

Every week, the Money Tips email features a real-life Money Moral Dilemma (MMD for short). They're intended to encourage debate and, as such, they're usually among the most discussed threads each week.

Should I pay towards the window and gutter cleaning my neighbour didn't tell me about?

My neighbour arranged for a window and gutter cleaner to attend to both their property and mine - but didn't discuss it with me first, only letting me know on the day the cleaner arrived. He's since asked me to contribute to the cost, which annoyed me as I was never consulted. Should I pay to keep the peace, even though I had nothing to do with it?

You can find out what our MSE Forumites think and add your own two cents on the Money Moral Dilemma discussion thread. Heed the MSE Forum rules: keep it kind and keep it clean. Remember, there's a real person behind every dilemma.

Latest comping wins

An unstoppable hive of activity, the Competitions Time board is where dedicated compers share and discover opportunities to win prizes. There have been heaps of recent successes, but special acknowledgement goes to NuggeyC, who had only been comping for four days when they won a £60 hamper. Congrats.
